So what say you?
I believe when you prominently feature the foreground subject it should be in focus. The earlier steam photos with the grasses are an example and I think they do better. An exercise would be combine shots to keep everything in focus. My new camera has focus stacking but not sure it would work for such and extreme example. I get outdoor photographer and a standard shot is flowers in the foreground and mountains in the back, everything is properly exposed and in focus.
